Though they are easily one of the smallest clubs in Serie A, Sassuolo have been consistently displaying an uncanny ability to make major upsets out of thin air.
With only 6 years of history in Italy's top flight, they are already a stable club in both league presence and table positions. Under the management of Roberto De Zerbi, they’ve been steadily climbing the ranks for the past 4 seasons. They finally broke the top 10 in 2019/20 and took 8th place, which was the best result since 2015/16’s major upset.
What makes betting on Sassuolo tricky, however, is the fact that bookmakers rarely offer a lot of options for outright Serie A bets. A Top 4 Finish is still far from their grasp at odds of 11, though if you can find an offer for a Top 10 it might be a good idea.
Sassuolo Key Players
Looking over the current roster, a few names stand out – mostly in attacking roles.
Number one would likely be right-winger Domenico Berardi, the all-time best goalscorer in Sassuolo. The wings appear to be their best lanes of offence, as the other end is covered by Jérémie Boga, a rising star of European football.
The next piece in this goal-getting machine is midfielder Manuel Locatelli in the midfield. With a traditional double-pivot formation, this squad is not only effective at putting the ball in the net – they expertly allow their strikers to do so in the first place.
Still, the midfield was re-shuffled, though. Stefano Sensi left for Inter, while Alfred Duncan signed with Fiorentina. This should give the overall roster a bit more balance, though, seeing how most of the incoming players are backs and wingers.
Since Sassuolo spent the most of his seasons in lower ranks, they don't have any major rivals in Serie A. Sassuolo fans consider Carpi, Modena and Reggio Audace their biggest rivals and they don't miss any chances to mock the fans of these teams because they are far away from Serie A.
The club was founded in 1920 and they immediately started competing in national competitions. However, throughout the history, Sassuolo was a small club, with no major ambitions. Therefore, they spent 59 seasons in fifth and lower tiers of Italian club competition.
Their rise to the top is even more impressive because of that. Sassuolo was competing in the fifth league during the 1990s, but they achieved promotion to Serie C2 in 1999. They spent eight seasons in that tier, and in 2006, they achieved promotion to Serie C1. After only two seasons, they managed to get to Serie B and after five more years, they became a Serie A club for the first time in their history. When we think that Sassuolo played in Serie C2 only 13 years ago, we have to admire their rise to the top.
